Supercapacitor based on electrochemically reduced graphene oxide

This article show results of research work which focused on a new electrodes for symmetrical supercapacitor which made from electrochemically reduced graphene oxide films.

The recovery process illustrated by experimental recordings С-V curves. Was identified the dependence of the reduced graphene oxide specific capacity from rate of charge/discharge, for symmetric and unipolar working voltage range. Was identified supercapacitor power density when it was tested in cyclic charge-discharge duty of the potentiostat with different speeds.
